Because our private dental practice is small, we are able to provide personalized and attentive treatment to each and every one of our patients For years, Dr. Tanner has been recognized for his ability to effectively treat both a patient's smile and, in turn, their overall health. Specializing in preventive and holistic dentistry Dr. Tanner in South Ogden, Utah is able to enhance and maintain your oral health, while simultaneously benefiting many other aspects of your health.
Understanding Our Approach to Dentistry
Holistic comes from the word "wholistic" meaning "whole." Taking into account a patient's whole body is incredibly important when prescribing and providing dental treatment. Dr. Tanner educates his patients on how dentistry plays an essential role in their overall health. Working closely with naturopaths and chiropractors allows our dental team to prescribe treatments that strengthen patient's immune systems and improves their overall health. Our goal is to successfully treat your body, mind, spirit, and smile, leaving you feeling rejuvenated, healthy, and beautiful.
Because mercury is a toxin that can be harmful to your overall health, Dr. Tanner uses mercury-free fillings and crowns that bond securely to your teeth and look completely natural. South Ogden Smiles offers another holistic dentistry service called air abrasion.
The procedure uses concentrated air pressure in combination with powder to gently blow away tooth decay and plaque without having to use a drill or needle. Our dental facility has isolated water lines allowing only distilled water to be used during treatments and cleanings. For many of our patients, suffering from headaches and paralyzing migraines is a thing of the past. Dr. Tanner uses revolutionary non-drug treatments to relax the stressed muscles under your scalp, preventing migraine headaches from occurring. If you have been diagnosed with migraines and have been given prescription pain relievers, Dr. Tanner may be able to help you achieve drug-free pain relief.
We are proud to be one of only a select few dentists who provide ozone therapy for our patients. Ozone therapy is the use of the O3 molecule, also known as ozone, in several dental applications. Ozone molecules bond with dangerous substances like viruses and bacteria, while promoting healthy tissue growth. Our team can further educate you on this non-hazardous, chemical-free treatment option.
Using digital x-rays, Dr. Tanner can more accurately evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums from the root to the crown. This advanced technology exposes our patients to 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays. Dr. Tanner carefully and thoroughly examines your smile, performing oral cancer screenings and checking for abnormalities. Discovering and diagnosing potential complications before they develop can help us more successfully treat you before symptoms become more severe.
Dr. Tanner recommends patients undergo general cleanings twice a year, and brush their teeth at least twice daily. If plaque remains on your teeth long enough, your risk for developing periodontal (gum) disease increases, which is why Dr. Tanner places emphasis on maintaining optimal oral hygiene. Starting preventive dental care at an early age helps protect the beauty and health of your entire smile.
Ozone therapy has many applications. Made in a specialized machine that converts oxygen molecules into ozone molecules, ozone therapy can destroy bacteria, fungus, and other harmful substances that develop within the mouth. Treatment using ozone is safe and painless, and it can be used during root canal therapy, as a pre-treatment before sealants, and more.
